Bar owner finds wedding ring lost for four years

 It is not uncommon for people to leave things like phones and credit cards at a bar at the end of the night, but what one woman left behind has the bar owners trying to track her down.

She left behind her wedding ring, and it looks like the ring has been there for years. It was only recently discovered during some remodeling work.

The bar owners say it was a first for them. The diamond wedding ring was found under a bench on an outdoor patio at the restaurant. 

Now they're hoping to reunite that ring with its owner.

"It's almost like a modern day Cinderella story," said Jackson Kelly.

But instead of matching someone to a glass slipper, Bliss Rebar co-owner Jackson Kelly is trying to find the woman who lost the wedding ring at his bar.

While doing some re-arranging on the back patio, they found the ring sitting on the ground between two benches.

The gleaming discovery was bittersweet for Kelly. Just days before finding the ring he tossed out a note written four years ago by a woman who lost her wedding ring here.

"I can envision the credit card receipt scratch paper in her writing, it was in blue ink," said Kelly.

"I immediately went into the trash, the dumpster, digging through hoping to find, it was literally a piece of paper," he said.

It was gone, but he's still hoping the story will have a fairy-tale ending.

"More than a lot heartsick, whether it is the wedding ring or a family heirloom, or whether it's a piece of jewelry they've had in their collection. I'm sure their heart sank four years ago, and mine sank just as much knowing that I literally had thrown that paper away just days before we found it. Just a crazy coincidence," said Jackson Kelly.

If that ring belongs to you, or someone you know you can contact Jackson. He's asking that you have a picture or some other way to prove it is really your ring, but he really wants to get that ring back to the person it belongs to.
